Student Employee Appreciation Week

due to covid-19, student employee appreciation week events on campus have been canceled for 2020.


Every year, Butler recognizes the importance of our student employees and the contributions they make to our University. This week draws the awareness of others, inside and outside of the University, to the major achievements student workers have made in the multitude of roles they fill. This year's Student Employee Appreciation (SEA) Week will be April 13–17, 2020. 

Below you'll find our SEA Week events!
